5 Top Workwear Trends for 2017
As we conclude the fashion week for this year, we can already feel a shift in the air with the new trend settings that have developed in this time. It’s the perfect time to talk about women and an even better one to discuss workwear for her. It’s the time of the feminist revolution and for her to be the new muse for the designers.
We’ve picked out some of the trends that are revolutionizing the workwear clothing for women across the world and whose influence can now be seen in our country as well:
1. Bold Colours
Gone are the days when neutral and dark tones were the only tones visible in the office premises and it is now time to move on to the bolder ones that brighten up our day and display our personalities. Women are decisively moving towards their own shade of colours and picking out the brightest of yellow or the darkest of reds, whichever defines her on a personal level. Keeping in mind the look of today’s woman, we’ve incorporated several bold shades in our collection, to give her the opportunity of discovering her preference.
2. Sleeve variations
Between the two sleeve lengths that have always been a part of the crowd, the women today are ready to explore new options while maintaining the standards of formal wear. Various sleeve styles can be seen coming back into fashion like the 3/4th and the bell sleeves which we have picked up from the ramp and showcased in our collection for the trendy look that women are looking for.
3. Fluid Fabrics
The workwear trend of 2017, aims at providing a chance for the modern working woman to incorporate varying fabric option`s, like silk and georgette into her work wardrobe that not only displays her femininity but does so with grace. This year’s collections aspire to provide the modern women with the flexibility and versatility that defines her life and now requires to be a part of her attire.
With the onset of Spring 2017 collection, ruffles are another trend which can be seen in full force for the women’s wear collection this year. Adorning necklines, skirts and even jackets, this trend has become a statement jewellery that is now soon becoming a part of the work wear option for the modern women. Making a statement for the up-to-date women of today, our collection comprises of tops and blouses that is not only appropriate for the lady bosses but also for their 9am to 9pm necessities.
Creating volume around the neckline, the trend of “Pussy Bow Blouses” has joined the workwear trend for the modern woman, combining itself with the flowy fabrics of chiffon and georgettes that proves vital for the schedule of the contemporary women and gives her a chance to break the norm of the old. Creating surface textures in the monotonous trends of a workplace, we have integrated this design into our collection to offer variation.
There are several trends that have emerged out of this year’s fashion influencers and out of which many are now being accepted in a workplace. Female employees are given the opportunity to experiment, where previously a male approach was the only acceptable method. Creating a difference, Ombre Lane’s collection provides the Indian women a possibility to choose a look that suits her personality and add style to her work wardrobe.
